Freinds, I got this phone last week in Indonesia. It costs $ 460 with 64MB M2. It is very expensive over here whereas our neighbourhood Singapore this phone is available at only USD 380.
It is a great phone. Couldn't wait longer for price to drop as when I saw it in one of the shop, I immediately grabbed it.
One of the websites posted some pics taken by SE K790 in comparision a professional camera from Canon. Well it was a pleasant surprise but I feel too much respect is given to this phone.
But I would confess it is great gadget which would be your companion as a Digial camera, Walkman, Organizer, communicator ( email ) and it also has a good web browser, though browsing with GPRS is killing in Indonesia, phone companies charge as much they can when you use GPRS.
Friends, I have not tried Nokia N73 or N93 or even 6233, but to what I feel this phone makes up to a great extent as you good companion.
Do try it to know that I am not wrong. You will be satisfied. But I have been hearing some stories about phone getting hanged etc etc, mine has not till yet.
So this all makes up to my loss of paying high price on this gadget.
Talk to you later.
k790i works in USA. I have been using it (Ohio) since it was released.
This looks like a nice Sony phone but i left Sony cuz of the 1900 mhz reception which was pretty pathetic with s700i, k750i (both i owned). Luv my samsung though. Dont get me wrong SE has nice phones but reception is main thing for me. Sorry sony when u build a rep for reception like nokia i will come back to u.
oops, post it on the wrong phone. the one i got is actually k800. k790 is little bit cheaper without the 3g support. so i decided to get the k800.
well, i just bought the phone in chinatown,nyc for $440 without the memory card. i want the one with the memory included. the price is only $40 more for the 512mb m2 card. they said they don't have it instock. guess i have to order it online or somewhere else. btw, great great phone. i am so happy with the camera quality.
Is there gonna b a walkman fone with the same 3.2mp camera, does any 1 kno...?
Can I use the k790i in the US? Im thinking of ordering it off of www.bargainoffers.com
But they only have the k790i not the k790a.
great phone at a great price. great camera quality. u all wont believe that after getting the pics. developed they didnt seem to be taken from a mobile camera. u all guys go for it. best product with best camera options in the market.
If you think you will send an email to SE and get a reply, forget it. I have mailed them twice, no reply as yet. My first message was on monday 7th Aug.
Yes it comes with 64mb memory. I got it too.Please set the photo resolution to 3M and click. It may hang, if it does then you too got a defective piece like me. All the best.
Alpha in Andheri is the biggest Chor ( Thief
).What he does is he will give you the original Peace and the Battery is at times Duplicate along with the charger and the memory card.
You need to use the phone carefully and SE has excellent Calrity in terms of Camera and the Screen. It's worth it.
There is a tip to maintenance the joystick. One from our friends has share that.
all SE phones have problem with the joystick. thats wat is stopping me from buying this phone. its not that expensive also here at rs.21500. watchout for the software its not g8r...hangs
Each market is different. That is why most of company websites (nokia, SE, etc.), usually have a disclaimer that memory card size vary depending on location. As far as I can tell, the SE USA website has no specifics on which memory card is included. I would go back to the "Alfa" website and see how much memory it says is included.
I don't think contacting SE will do you any good. Including only 64MB memory makes perfect sense for sony, because then you have to buy more memory, so sony profits from it.
While I agree that it would probably be a good combination for both the cybershot and walkman features on one phone, I doubt SE will be combining the two any time soon. Each one is targeting to different groups of people. Also, the combination of the two features would probably cause SE to raise the price significantly on such a phone.
I bought ths piece 2 days back from ALfa in Andheri for 21400 INR. What I noticed was I got only 64 MB of Memory stick with it. though I have cn on some websites which says they are providing 256 MB Memorystick with this piece. I would like to know weather I have been cheated or is this all we get with this piece? Because the price is not justified for just 64 MB of memory + 64 internal memory.. really sad that with such a wonderful camera I need to think twice to click a foto :(
Sony Erricson people .. are you listening>?
I would be sending this mail to thm as well but just wanted all you guys to know abt this issue .. Please let me know if any one of you recvd > 64MB memorystick with this piece..
thx guys :)
Thank you guys. i took it to the service depot. They originally told me that it is software problem. After an hour they told me it is a hardware problem. They agreed to replace it. Replacement takes about 10days. with the lens cover opening, the lens will soon get enough dust covered or damaged. Thats the price for no fault of us. Wish sony ericsson comes out with a solution. Which seems unlikely.
